Midway between the middle of your eyebrows is the right place. You must apply deep pressure with your thumb or index finger moving forward. Then, continue for a minute or until pain decreases while breathing deeply.

  • Hand

You can make small circular motions and apply really firm pressure on your thumb nail or you can hold the thumb with the pressure for a considerable time.

  • Neck

Find the middle of your neck at the back of your head.

Then move your fingers towards directly below the skull and top of the neck. You will find a small hollow.  Now continue to move your fingers about 1 to 2 inches to each of the sides.

Next, lean your head slightly backward and apply pressure with your thumb to the hollow area and press upward for two minutes or until the pain stops.

Most importantly, remember to breathe deeply during this procedure.

Top of head

This pressure point is at the top of your head. The easiest method to find the accurate place is by draw an imaginary line from the front of one ear to the front of opposite ear over the skull. Again, draw another imaginary line from the center of your brow up to the top of your head at the midpoint to meet the first imaginary line. The meeting of two lines is the intersection to the pressure point.

Now you may apply strong pressure to this point for a minute; or till the pain stops while breathing deeply.


This pressure point is on the top of your foot, located between your first and the second toes.

Now apply pressure in a rubbing motion to this area with either your thumb or the heel of your opposite foot for a minute.

Change and repeat the procedure on other foot while breathing deeply.

    While I can wait for a migraine, I can’t wait to try these! Lemongrass tea (Teavana Zen) helps tremendously and applying lemon grass oil to my temples!!
